I’m a girl in love with color, and I’m currently counting down the days to ditch every black outfit in my wardrobe. I cannot wait to sail through spring with punchy, vibrant colors and flirty silhouettes. You’ll rarely see me choose basic styles or colors, however every once in awhile, a piece comes along, captures my heart, and I just can’t manage to live my life without it.
Several new styles have caught my eye for Spring, and the midi skirt is one for them. The midi skirt, is a full, mid length skirt, which lays a few inches below the knees. I have to admit, when I first saw the style, I was hesitant. I didn’t think I could pull off the look since I’m a shortie. I’ve seen these skirts in every store, designed with multiple colors and prints. Many of my friends have been wearing them and I’ve admired the look on other bloggers as well.
Choosing the perfect outfit for Valentine’s Day, in the middle of snowy February can be quite the challenge. If you are like me, you are completely sick of your winter wardrobe and all of the dark colors that come with it. Spring clothing is out it the stores right now, and it keeps you dreaming of the sunny weather and the beach, but unfortunately it’s completely unrealistic for the winter temps right now. Or is it? There are many ways to brighten your Valentine’s outfit and make it look transitional. When I dress up, I aim to look sophisticated, elegant and glamourous at the same time. My look always changes depending on where I’m headed for the evening.
It was just a day before Thanksgiving and I had the perfect outfit to wear. There was a forecast for snow, and as I worked from my computer, and gazed out the window, I could see the most beautiful, little white flakes, sprinkling upon the city. It was our first New York City snowfall of the season. I darted out of work to meet Grant and take our perfect snowfall photos, however as I bolted out the door, I was greeted with rain and a bunch of puddles. #omg.
The winter months are upon us and with that comes the unpredictable rainy, snowy weather. As much as I dread the temperatures, I’m loving the fun, fancy cold weather accessories I’ve found this season.
Sorel is a footwear brand that has recently stolen my heart. I’ve never been a girl who dresses practically. I love sparkly, fancy outfits which are rarely weather appropriate. While attending a Vogue style party, I was introduced to Sorel’s Fall/Winter boot collection. Sorel is best known for their waterproof boots. They are perfect for trudging through any sort of crazy weather. We were able to choose the style we liked best, and my eyes were immediately drawn to the Medina II Boot.
We are back in my hometown of Amherst, Ohio for a quick family visit. Coming back to the town where I grew up brings back so many childhood memories. Amherst is a small, charming town with cute shops, fun little restaurants, and friendly people. I always feel such a difference arriving here from the big city. It takes me about a day to adjust to the pace of my days here, but I find it calming and therapeutic. One of the things I love most is the watching the change of seasons. Right now, the trees are bursting with beautiful, fall colors, and the air feels crisp. I can even smell the change in the season. During our visit, we celebrated my mom’s birthday, toasted with champagne, and enjoyed being together. The happiness of home, and the love of family makes me feel complete.
While preparing for a hometown visit to Ohio, I went a little sweater crazy, in an attempt to find perfect sweaters for my trip. I’m generally not a sweater girl, so finding styles that I like is usually a challenge.
New York Fashion Week is here and it seemed to bring the cold weather, sleet, and snow. This time of year, dark colors tend to dominate our wardrobes. After a few months, it leaves me longing for sunshine and brighter colors. With a quick glance through my closet, I realize that winter white and a whimsical print is the perfect solution to update to my look.
I woke up Friday morning to a snowstorm in NYC! The ground was covered in beautiful, white, powdery snow. I instantly felt like a child again. My heart was racing. What was I going to do with my free fun day? There’s only so much eating and shopping you can do in NYC, and while I love doing both, I wanted this day to be fun and adventurous. I grabbed my coat, and headed out to play in snowy Central Park.
